Topic "Error Changing to Directory: No such file or directory"

Author Message


There is a specific directory that gets created automatically via a script every day, and I am unable to "browse" to that directory via the WinSCP GUI.

The directory name in question is "Cell Phones & Accessories".

Every morning I clear all the sub-folders in the "logs" directory and over the course of the day the scripts create about 12 sub-folders. This is the only sub-folder that I am having this issue with and I am having it every day (after having removed the directory via SSH every morning). I do not have the same issue when accessing the directory via SSH. I use the same user to log in via FTP as I do via SSH.

Screenshot Images linked below and session log is attached. If you require any further information please let me know.

Do you have the same problem in other FTP clients? Why do you use FTP, instead of SFTP (as you have an SSH access)?
